Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Best Quotes about Children
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.

Kennedy, John F.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense.

You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.

I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
